Allergy and Anaphylaxis Aware School

Florey Primary School is an allergy and anaphylaxis aware school. This is to provide protection for children who have severe allergic reactions to nuts and nut products. Parents and Carers are asked to provide nut free food for their child's morning tea and lunch.

Howard Walter Florey

The suburb is named after Howard Walter Florey (1898-1968). Florey was born in Adelaide on September 24, 1898. After studying at the Adelaide University he became a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford. Later he held the positions of Professor of Pathology at Sheffield and at Oxford (1935 -1962). While at Oxford Florey and his team isolated a relatively pure form of penicillin and produced it in sufficient quantities for it to have widespread use during the later stages of World War II. Florey was knighted in 1944 and shared the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1945. Florey acted as an advisor to the John Curtin School of Medical Research in Canberra for 10 years and was also Chancellor of the ANU in 1966.

School History

Most houses were constructed in the suburb of Florey during the mid 1980's. However the school was not built and opened until 1989. The original motto was 'Learning is Wonderful!' and the logo shows a group of children holding hands  under the distinctive Florey roofline. In 2007 the logo was modernised to symbolically represent an inclusive learning culture.
